It also holds Marvel’s record for biggest opening weekend at $207 million, but that could change this weekend with Captain America: Civil War.

It tops the list for Marvel’s highest-grossing film domestically ($623.3 million), the highest-grossing film distributed by Disney, the highest-grossing superhero movie and the highest-grossing movie based on comics.
